MCND’s BIC’s Pre-Debut
As you may already saw from his profile, BIC is not his real name. BIC was born with the name Nam Seungmin. But the name Seungmin is quite familiar in the K-pop industry, there are Seungmin from other K-pop groups such as Seungmin from Golden Child and Seungmin from Stray Kids. So, BIC decided to use a stage name instead of his real name.
BIC, or Nam Seungmin, was born and raised in Anseong, Gyeonggi-do. He was born on April 25th, 2001. He lived in Anseong along with his parents and his older sister. Although he is not the youngest member in MCND, in his family, BIC is the youngest child.
As a child, BIC was dreaming to be a bodyguard instead of an idol. He always thought that it was cool to have a bodyguard suit and wear earphones. The acts of a bodyguard who is really cool by protecting someone or something made the little Nam Seungmin want to become one. But it happened to be just a childhood dream. If it had turned into reality, we wouldn’t be seeing him as BIC of MCND now.
Instead of becoming a bodyguard, BIC focused on dancing when he was a child. He grew up enjoying dancing and listening to K-pop music. When he was in middle school, BIC auditioned for a K-pop agency and became a trainee. However, he didn’t just make a debut right away. It was such a long journey for BIC or who was known by his real name at that time, Nam Seungmin.
Along with other trainees, such as Castle J and Minjae, BIC flew to America to learn to dance. At that time, he was still 14 years old or 15 years old in the Korean age system. The youngsters went to America to get better at dancing, just like some other K-pop idols. No wonder BIC and the other members are now really great dancers on stage.
But it took years to train. BIC still had to wait for several years to come until his debut days. Also, he was still young at that time. He still hadn’t finished middle school too. So, he couldn’t do anything besides train and patiently wait. Fortunately, BIC didn’t give up. If he did, it would be such a big loss for the K-pop world and MCND.
MCND’s BIC’s Debut
BIC started to be a trainee when he was in middle school. While focusing on school, BIC trained for five to six years as a trainee in Top Media. He went from a middle school student to a high school student until he finally made a debut in Top Media’s latest K-pop boy group. Gladly, all of it is worth the wait. Nam Seungmin was just a boy who was good at dancing, but he’s now a K-pop idol of a group called MCND.
MCND is a K-pop boy group that made a debut in February 2020. The group consists of five talented members which are Castle J, BIC, Huijun, Minjae, and Win. They are the latest boy group from the company that debuted Teen Top, UP10TION, they also debuted the UP10TION members as solo singers such as Kim Wooseok and Lee Jinhyuk. The company is called Top Media, and it is managed under Andy Lee from Shinhwa.
It officially started when MCND released their first single on February 27th, 2020. The boy group made a debut with a song titled “Ice Age”. Not only BIC, but there are also other four members: Castle J, Minjae, Win, and Huijun who officially became MCND members. Let’s see the music video of MCND’s debut song “Ice Age”!
